Shadows of the Dark Side / Re: Imperial AT-AT

It's reported elsewhere there are some AT-AT's showing up in Canada with retro style "SPECIAL OFFER 2 STORMTROOPERS (Hoth Battle Gear)" stickers that show the Vintage carded snowtrooper from a few years ago, which I guess means they are included.

I haven't gotten the AT-AT yet, so maybe I should hold out for that version.  8)

Luke's Skyhopper would be nice, if they did away with the ejection escape craft.

Skiff redo...which IIRC, they've shot down in q&A's...not having enough kid appeal or something...well, they made the cloud

And my pipe dream, Imperial troop transporter.

Next year's "BMF"...and you thought it would be like an ESB Slave 1 or that Sail Barge.  ;)

K-Mart has started (?) to clearance their exclusive Clone Trooper 4-pack, the one with Scuba Clone, Red ARC Trooper, Quad Gunner and clone armor Obi-Wan, for $19. They still have a bunch around here. Just need a 50% off sale!  8)

During the presentation, this slide was at the end and time was short, so they just mentioned this one set.  But yes, the slide does say "Saga Vehicles with Figure", which could mean anything.

It could mean a new exclusive assortment of new sets from the movies ('Saga' usually means all six movies, not just OT).  Or, it could be like the last time TRU carried an exclusive "Saga Vehicles with Figure" assortment, which ended up being just a repainted STAP and repainted Speeder Bike.

In other words, you may be right that there will be more, but since there is a high likelyhood that the other sets will just be more repaints/repack sets, no one really cares enough to comment on it.

Odds are there'll be one other set alongside it, like they did with the speeder bike and STAP. If they are wise, it would be the battle pack's gunship ball turret with a clone. But more likely it'll another speeder bike with the Endor Luke from the battle pack, or that Hoth speeder bike  :P.

How about a seperate release of the khaki/tan droid? Or is it because there's only one of that battle droid tooling? I guess they have duplicate clone trooper molds, hence the shock trooper, 501st and white ROTS clone all shipping in Legends at the same time.  Or is it their strange "no new figures on Legends card backs" stance (IIRC, they said something like that)...since changing the color would make them new?

They seem to stubbornly refuse to put VOTC Stormtrooper in legends, acting like the clean Sandtrooper was good enough. Lack of Utapau Clone is strange, given how much attention they give Commander Cody in the regular and especialy in the clone wars series (you'd think they'd reissued his 212th clone there, too).  Run off some of that comic book pack Utapau clone and...who we kidding, they have plan a year in advance for even a simple reissue on a new card.

I passed up the Gelagrub set for $12.49 today. It's like buying a clone and a doggie toy. Now that I think about it, could've sold the grub for half the cost of the set, maybe...

Wait for the purple Mace Windu's Jedi Turbo Speeder redeco, and the Darth Vader Jedi Turbo Speeder, which he used while waiting for his TIE-Turbo Speeder to arrive.  :P

Shadows of the Dark Side / Re: TRU "Battle of Endor" Pilot 4-packs
« on: August 15, 2010, 11:09 AM »
These will be $30 at least. TRU lost its sanity on exclusive pricing years ago. (I'm still not sure what happened to all those Commander Ponds?)

Could've been something like this:

Imperial Commander (Needa in black with At-At Commander legs)
AT-AT Commander (Vintage colors, all dark grey)
TIE Pilot (grey boots and gloves)
Bespin Guard (Sgt. Eidan with caucasian skin)
Could Car Pilot (different colored mustache or possibly dark skinned)
Ugnaught (head swap on the two recent ones, with color tweaks)
Hoth Rebel trooper (beardless)
Wedge Antilles (Snow Speeder, admittedly, not a vintage release, but follows the trend of making Wedge hard to get!)
Luke Skywalker (Bespin, classic Kenner deco...peachy clean uniform and oh-so-blonde)

Just as glad it wasn't. I have a hard time buying big sets and opening collector packaging.

Found two sets today, both big eyed.

Got one set. Fairly soft plastic, but decent enough. These are the first new Battle Droids I've gotten since Episode 1 stuff went on clearance. The later molds never seemed worh the money, and I've never been a fan of the droid design especially. Decent figures (I read their necks are technically backwards from the movie), I might get more so my clone finally have something to shoot at besides Jedi.

My pack included the old weapons assortment, so I got a battle droid gun with the tab, and I tried plugging into the trooper's pack but it's too loose to stay in. Bummer.

I don't understand the card game, how do Battle Droids have force ability, and bonus force ability, too?  LUCASFILM GREENLIGHTED THAT??  :o

The Hoth Chewie looks kinda dumb, btw. Still haven't seen IG-88.

What, you mean that ATOC Boba Fett from 2002 isn't worth $9?  :P

I'm tired of pilots, but it's nice they made Grizz.

FX-7, Bespin Guard and an AT-AT driver were others.

Seems like overkill...making them all in one box.

I didn't even know the vintage 3-packs existed until I saw pictures of them in a collectibles guide, so that sense of nostalgia just isn't quite there for me.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Ventress' Fanblade Fighter?
« on: August 12, 2010, 09:58 PM »
Perhaps instead of using Ventress, they should've just created another bald, white-skinned, evil female character. Assajj, Sly Moore and Aurra Sing just aren't enough.  :D 

Or how about an armored bounty hunter? Or a light saber wielding cyborg...or....

The acolyte thing is like what Roger Ebert said about that Memoirs of a Geisha movie "Here is a useful rule: Anyone who is 'not technically a prostitute' is a prostitute." She's a Sith in all but name only.
